i am SOOOO sorry for the confusion.

BUT GO FOR IT!!! YOU CAN DO IT!

this is prolly not the brackets thatchu had in mind, but there is a step by step on how to mount brackets (they all mount pretty much the same. be it the track for the track style brackets, or the brackets that attach directly to the studs/sheet rock)..........2nd picture set. just click on each step.

U can do that, shelf brackets can be a bit expensive but easier than DIY supports, plywood > than 36" OC, OSB or particle board, > 24" OC

LMAO! Quote of the day.

Particle board is not the best for shelves. It hates moisture, and will bend/warp/sag when weight is placed on it. If you need them now, go for it, but you will eventually want to get regular plywood.

As said above, OSB is better than particleboard, but plywood is best.
Ya but you look HUGE in your pics

My boots need to be fixed
I've walked holes through the soles. They're sitting in my car. I'm hoping I have the spare change to pay for it.

Wouldn't I need a Mitre saw of some sort? Or at least a mitre box and the ability to use a saw?

I was thinking something like this. Yes, the studs are exposed. I don't mean to whine but you guys kicked me in the butt without even knowing it. I need to toughen up.

What kind of boots are they? Mine are Justin cowboy boots, and the sole (leather) needs to be fixed, but I can't see actually wearing a hole through them.

Dan Post. Because of the way my feet are so jacked up, they're the only thing I can wear.
